Vox Terminus - for ensemble and animated graphic score (2015)
Vox Terminus is inspired by optical art, constructed upon the basic geometric shape of a triangle. It is composed with polymetric patterns (inspired by the Euclidean algorithm) traveling through parallax effect (used as illusion of perspective in video games and computer graphics). The name can be translated both as ‘border noises’ and ‘noise limit’.
